    Over the years, many of my favorite snacks and products have vanished, never to be seen again. Has that happened to anyone? Here are just a few of my favorite, discontinued products:

    Hi Ho Crackers - Better flavor than Ritz in my opinion and had less salt. Gone.

    Belvita Apple-Cinnamon breakfast bars- My absolute favorite breakfast bars... gone with no explanation. I inquired on their Facebook page, and the admin (or whoever) just said they've been discontinued. Didn't say why.

    Summit - Basically, it was Twix without the caramel, and since I didn't like caramel, I loved this candy bar.

    Delaware Punch- My all-time favorite childhood soft drink. Apparently, they still sell it in certain spots in the southern US, but I've never seen it. I recently visited the Coke factory in Atlanta, GA, and apparently this drink is sold in Honduras. *scratches head*
    [​IMG]

    Old Spice Mountain Rush - My all-time favorite deodorant... gone. Several years ago, I saw about 10 of them at Safeway on clearance, so I bought all of them, which lasted a little over a year, but after that...

    I could make an even longer list if I put my mind to it. I would have said McDonalds Fried Apple Pies, but you can currently get them at KFC.

    Has anyone's favorite product(s)/brands disappeared, never to be seen again?

    A couple years ago, I would've said Surge, but... ;) 

    I still kinda miss Crystal Pepsi. They promised to bring it back this summer, but I didn't see a single damned one.

    There was a nice little ice cream treat called Dibs (or something like that)... I don't think they still make them and I miss them

    Low Sodium Goldfish crackers, now's there's all these wacky flavors but I always preferred that one. It probably was discontinued because no one bought it but me!

    They actually did bring it back, but it was apparently a very limited kinda thing and wasn't around for long. I only ever got it twice... and the sad thing is, it actually tastes better than regular Pepsi, imho. It's definitely something I wish was more of a long-term kinda thing.

    Similarly, I miss the Holiday Spice Pepsi they did for like two years in a row. It was basically Pepsi with the addition of cinnamon to it, which sounds odd, but I really liked it. Probably the best tasting Pepsi I ever had...

    Crystal Pepsi. They brought it back this summer, but now it's gone again and sadly the only place I ever found it at the gas station across from my apartments is now out. Apparently I bought the last case of 12oz bottles they had this week. Strangely I only ever saw the 12oz bottles. I thought they were also supposed to release cans and 2ltr bottles too? Anyways, they need to make this a regular thing because my wife, my kids and myself all like this more than regular Pepsi.

    DiGiorno used to make a deep dish pepperoni pizza that was more like an actual pie - this joker was at least two inches thick. I haven't seen it in close to ten years.

    I used to love both of these back in the day.
    Something about how they made the cheez balls was so much tastier than cheetos or the generic versions.

    Man, I used to eat P.B.Crisps quite a lot as a kid. I really missed that. And that goes for those Cheese Balls too. :(

    The only one left I really remember enough to still get salty over is Mt. Dew Distortion. I will never.. ever.. understand how that low rent squirt clone won the vote over it..
